The Bay Bridges Compilation Review

by AllMusic

Oakland, the bustling city at one end of the stretching, sprawling Bay Bridge, boasts one of the more flourishing and diverse rap scenes in the United States, and E-40, with his wholly unique delivery and hook-filled story songs, has been at the peak of hip-hop from the early 1990s. On THE BAY BRIDGES COMPILATION, the impresario collects some of Oaktown's leading lights from known quantities like Mac Mall (on the alluringly bass-heavy and silly "Slobber") to lesser known youngsters Tha Factorz (on the hypnotic "In My Hood"). Playing like an intimate mixtape, THE BAY BRIDGES COMPILATION effortlessly proves that rap still thrives in Oakland.
